Seven Years, by Sully Erna (of Godsmack)

Here are some of the lyrics from one last Sully Erna song today, this one named Seven Years:

If there was no tomorrow
Would you still remain the same?
Or live your life so shallow
And take it for granted everyday?

So take away tomorrow
And tell me again why we blame
Why we waste all our time
When time may not wait another day

So again, years go by
So many tears I cried

Now that we’re through
I’ll still honor you
And harmlessly swallow my pride

It’s time to fall away
It’s time to separate
And maybe we’ll be alright
Seven years gone by

For seven years
I’ve tried to make it
But how long can I take it
It’s time to fly
Seven years gone by

If there was no tomorrow
Would you still retain all your hate?
Or live your life with no one to spite
And free your spirit again

My Light, by Sully Erna (of Godsmack)

Here’s another beautiful “unplugged” song from Sully Erna, this one is named My Light. A few lyrics:

You always bring me light
And you help me find my way
A gentle kiss goodnight
Is the innocence I crave

Here I am
Humbled and amazed
This beautiful little miracle of life
Was gifted to me

And here I am
I never thought I’d say
If ever I could live my life again
I’d live it your way

You’ve always brought me life
And you’ve helped me find my way
A simple kiss goodnight
Is the innocence I crave

Under the light you shine on me
I promise I will be there for you baby
I’d never wanna leave you anyway
You’ve become my light

I cross my heart that’s in your hands
With hope that you will always be my best friend
I promise I will be there ’til the end
You’ve become my light

Under the light you shine on me
I promise I will be there for you baby
I’d never wanna leave you anyway
You’ve become my light

I cross my heart that’s in your hands
With hope that you will always be my best friend
I promise I will be there ’til the end
You’ve become my light

You’ve become my light
You’ve become my light ...

Until Then, by Sully Erna (of Godsmack)

I’m a fan of many Godsmack songs, and this is their lead singer, Sully Erna, playing piano and singing a beautiful song named Until Then. (With Irina Chirkova playing the cello.) A few lyrics:

Lie
Awake
Watching you run through my head
I’m alone again, but not for long my friend

We face another day
And distance has come and taken you far away again
But I’ll see you soon my friend
And then I’ll sing you my song

I can’t go home alone again
No I can’t
My friend
Until then

Eyes, I recognize
Taking me back
Familiar to me from some other time
Or maybe another life

Remember our times, and know who I am
The memory stays, until we can breathe as one again
And I’m coming back my friend
And then I’ll sing you my song

And I can’t go home alone again
No I can’t go home all alone again
No I can’t go home all alone again
No I can’t
My friend
Until then

Moon Baby by Godsmack

I edited Chapter 6 of my new book whilst listening to Moon Baby by Godsmack. I’m not sure I can be held responsible for whatever ended up in that chapter. :)

Lyrics from Human Wheels, by John Mellencamp

This land today, shall draw its last breath
And take into its ancient depths
This frail reminder of its giant, dreaming self
While I, with human-hindered eyes
Unequal to the sweeping curve of life
Stand on this single print of time.

This land, today, my tears shall taste
And take into its dark embrace
This love, who in my beating heart endures
Assured, by every sun that burns
The dust to which this flesh shall return
It is the ancient, dreaming dust of God.

Lyrics from the Genesis song Undertow

Lyrics from the Genesis song Undertow, which just came across my random playlist:

Better think awhile
Or I may never think again.
If this were the last day of your life, my friend,
Tell me, what do you think you would do then?

Stand up to the blow that fate has struck upon you,
Make the most of all you still have coming to you,
Lay down on the ground and let the tears run from you,
Crying to the grass and trees and heaven finally on your knees.

Let me live again, let life come find me wanting.
Spring must strike again, against the shield of winter.
Let me feel once more the arms of love surround me,
Telling me the dangers past, I need not fear the icy blast again.
